MOTHER.REDUX.

Mother.Redux. is a 65 minute performance and collaboration with an inter-disciplinary  group of five women/mother performers. Going beyond the Hallmark card, we speak the unspoken, the shameful, and the hilarious. We expose the miracle of the transformation, as well as the sexism, racism, isolation and anxiety encountered along the way. Above all, Mother.Redux. is a work of love.

 

We pull from our diverse traditions, contemporary dance-theater, Afro-Brazilian dance, Filipino vaudeville, and West African dance and drumming. Each mother/dancer looks at what she has culturally inherited and how she is caught in the collision between expectations and reality. The writer/performers offer keen observations, wry humor and a physicality that is both precise and explosive.
